Editorial Reviews


“Do I need this book, or one of similar quality? There is no doubt; it is an item that I would want available in any multiple-surgery practice I worked in, for all of the staff, for reference, and for quickly resolving differences of opinion. However, I would encourage home reading, too; you will be surprised what updates you need and what grabs your attention.”

The best back-up you could ask for.. November 3, 2006
A well organised, comprehensive, relevant text perfect for senior dental students and young dentists. Patient with complex medical history? This book will explain exactly what is relevant to you for each item in their history. If you’re pushed for time you can just cut to the dental aspects section for each condition, but there’s plenty of detail on the general and medical aspects if you have time and want to actually understand what’s happening in the rest of your patient’s body, or just impress your tutors. Buy it.

It is a book that can keep us familiar with current knowledge and let us far away getting risk of litigation. It can give us a continuous education on oral health.
Couldn’t be better October 26, 2003
After reading many books regarding the medical aspect of dentistry, I can honestly say that this book by Scully and Cawson is the best I’ve read and the best I’ve enjoyed reading. It covers all aspects and most importantly, it relates back to its dental implications very well. Very well laid out, very simple and concise and very very informative. An excellent book.
